About me

Therapy is a very personal, private and individual experience, there is nothing magical or mysterious about it - we come to therapy when something in our lives isn't working.

My intention is to support you to nurture and get in touch with your own goals and dreams. To reconnect you to that part in each of us that seeks hope and purpose and to help you to take control over the development of your own life.

My approach is warm and empathic and I hope by creating a safe environment through establishing clear boundaries and developing trust, a meaningful connection evolves at a pace that is most comfortable for you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have always been interested in what makes us do what we do and I was fortunate enough to find my calling whilst studying counselling in college.

In 2010 I completed the U.U.J. HE Diploma in Counselling gaining a distinction. and more recently gained a Foundation Certificate in Gestalt theory at N.R.C. and a Post Graduate Certificate in Systemic Practice and Family Therapy from Queen's University Belfast.

I have also attended many short courses and workshops as part of ongoing professional development (as per BACP ethical guidelines) and I am currently working towards accreditation with BACP.

I have been fortunate to work in a variety of settings which have developed my abilities as a growing therapist. From working intensely in the Autism community with young people and adults to being a strong component of a GP surgery facing wide ranging issues from low mood, depression, domestic violence and anxiety.

My supervisors have taught me a variety of valuable interventions which I use in my daily work. I firmly believe in continuing to challenge myself as a therapist.
